How do I implement a Group Policy on Windows 98 systems?

How do I implement a Group Policy on Windows 98 systems? I am using Active Directory with Windows 2000 Server. I still have some Win 98 systems on the network and want to implement Group Policies.
Unfortunately, the answer is the same each time the question is asked… You don't. Group Policy only applies to Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 2003 systems. You can use old-style SYSTEM POLICY, but those are much more cantankerous.
